Create and check signed URIs with expiration time support. This bundle is a further development of Symfony's URI Signer.


composer require code4nix/uri-signer


Create a signed URI

To create a signed URI with an expiration time of 1 day (default), you can use $this->uriSigner->sign($strUri). You can add a second parameter $intExpires to add a custom expiration time. E.g. call $this->uriSigner->sign($strUri, 600) to get a URI with an expiration time of 10 minutes.

Check the signed URI/request

To check the URI you can use $this->uriSigner->check($strUri).

Instead of building a URI you can call $this->uriSigner->checkRequest($request) method and pass a Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request object to check the signature of its related URI. Both methods return boolean true if the URI passes validation, or boolean false if the URI is invalid or expired.

Error handling

Alternatively you can run the check() or checkRequest() methods with a second optional boolean parameter $this->uriSigner->check($strUri, true) or $this->uriSigner->checkRequest($request, true), which will raise exceptions if a URI cannot be verified (e.g. has been tampered, has expired or is a malformed URI).

  • MalformedUriException
  • InvalidSignatureException
  • ExpiredLinkException

Usage in your controller:



namespace App\Controller;

use Code4Nix\UriSigner\Exception\ExpiredLinkException;
use Code4Nix\UriSigner\Exception\InvalidSignatureException;
use Code4Nix\UriSigner\Exception\MalformedUriException;
use Code4Nix\UriSigner\UriSigner;
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\AbstractController;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;
use Symfony\Component\Routing\Annotation\Route;

 * @Route("/uri_signer_test", name="uri_signer_test")
class UriSignerTestController extends AbstractController

    public function __construct(
        private readonly UriSigner $uriSigner,
    ) {

    public function __invoke(Request $request): Response
        // Sign a URI with an expiration time of 10 min
        $uri = '';

        $signedUri = $this->uriSigner->sign($uri, 600);

        // For test usage we will create our request object manually.
        $request = Request::create(

        $responseText = 'URI is valid.';

        // Use check($signedUri, true) or checkRequest($request, true)
        // If set to true the second boolean parameter will raise exceptions if a URI cannot be verified.
        try {
            $this->uriSigner->checkRequest($request, true); // or $this->uriSigner->check($signedUri, true);
        } catch (MalformedUriException $e) {
            $responseText = 'Malformed URI detected!';
        } catch (ExpiredLinkException $e) {
            $responseText = 'URI has expired!';
        } catch (InvalidSignatureException $e) {
            $responseText = 'Invalid signature detected! The URI could have been tampered.';
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            $responseText = 'Oh, la, la! Something went wrong ;-(';

        return new Response($responseText);


The default expiration and the parameter are configurable:

# config/config.yaml
  parameter: '_signed' # default: '_hash'
  expiration: 20 # default: 86400 (1 day)
